just a question, in terms of general functionality, is this different than SDownloader?

Well unlike plugins like that, you don't have to worry about listing things since it just does it for you, no hassle.

You would use other precacher/downloader plugins if you want to have full control over which files are sent to the client and which files are precached while this plugin is meant to precache every file on the server and add it to the downloads table so you don't have to worry about it. There is a config file you can use to add file exclusions so the plugin doesn't handle those files via a blacklist system.

my plugin does not precache all the files on the server -_-...

it excludes every valve's default files and my plugin also has blacklist feature -_-..

of course similar plugin can be made but dont post your plugin link on my plugin thread. that's quite rude.

Could you give an example of the contents of the exclusions file? I'm not sure if I'm doing it incorrectly, but it does not seem to be excluding files properly.
Also, could it have something to do with the files on the FastDL server being .bz2 files as opposed to their native extentions (.mp3, .vtf, .vmt, etc)? I'm attaching (one of) my exclusion files - I just put in what I assumed to be the correct way to do this.

I don't know if I'm just dumb or if something is broken but this doesn't seem to work for me. I even tried recompiling with #debug defined and still can't figure out why it won't work...

Input the command 'sm_generateexternals' in either the client console as admin or server console and send me the output file via PM or post it here if you don't care about people seeing your list of files.
